Zero trust is not a new cybersecurity concept, yet it seems everywhere lately. In case you’re unfamiliar with zero trust, it is defined as an approach to security that assumes no implicit trust between users, devices, or networks as a baseline, and once a user has been verified as legitimate, authorized, and trustworthy, access is allowed. Zero trust has been so effective as a cybersecurity strategy that the U.S. Federal Government and global policies issued by NIST, CISA, and DOD have effectively catapulted zero trust to the forefront of a digital transformation strategy by committing to implement it with modernizing IT and OT infrastructure.
So, with all the recent hype, why have only 33% of global businesses adopted zero trust? As with any new security approach, zero trust presents several obstacles that can prevent businesses and their trusted managed service providers (MSPs) from moving forward.
The shared knowledge delivered via WatchGuard’s Unified Security Platform architecture along with implementation by QPC Security unlocks true zero trust approaches for companies.
